1. IT'S ALL ABOUT THE WATER
Your thirst response is not as strong in winter as during the warmer months. That doesn't mean you don't need to drink the same amount of water. It is essential to stay hydrated at all times. When you start feeling thirsty is already too late. Drink throughout the whole day. You can spice your water with some slices of ginger, hot peppers, apples, or pomegranate to bring a bit of autumn into this daily ritual. You can bring water into your body with healthy soups and indulging tea as well.
2. COLORFUL, HEALTHY MEALS
Eating well, it's just a reminder because we know that you already try to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Try to put at least three different colors of ingredients in every meal; green, orange, and red. And despite hearing it all the time, we will say it again; eat as organic and healthy as possible. And try to use local goods. Take time to prepare your meals and eat like french people. Eat slowly with enjoyment and care.

5. TEA TIME
Take time to isolate yourself from the outside world completely. Take five peaceful minutes every day. It's going to be a challenge at first to take it at a point when everything and everyone around you is in chaos. Make yourself a cup of matcha or a cup of organic herbal tea, full of forest and garden goods. Listen to the boiling water, inhale the scents of herbs and slowly take a sip. Listen to your beating heart; you must listen to yourself. Just breathe and release the tension. After that, you will be ready to cope with every situation.
Try to laugh as much as you can. It will release the muscle tension of your face and body and make everyone around you more cheerful.
